Hi I am new here and I was just curious I have been diagnosed with raynaud's for 2yrs now and I didn't really do anything about it until these past 2months or so because my symptoms were getting worse I was getting more sensitive to the weather changing and sometimes it came on for no reason. I did get an ana test done and it came back negative but I have heard that sometimes happens. My mom had lupus and died 15yrs ago due to her many complications. I think back then and where we lived the medication wasn't as good as we have today. I have heard of lupus being genetically linked do any of you have a family history of lupus is my question? Did you get diagnosed with raynaud's or something else before the diagnosis of lupus? And last did you get a false only to later get a positive? ... Just when I think back to my health and when get sick sometimes I literally feel like I could die. The last time I got that sick was a year ago I had a sinus infection and tonsillitis at the same time I could barely open my eyes the sun hurt my eyes so much tears ran down my face and I wasn't even crying and on top of it the migrates were the worse I have experienced it was a pounding headache.
My doctor also said that usually when you have raynaud's it come with another autoimmune disease. I have been experiencing joint pains, eye problems, always feel like something is stuck in my throat, when I get goose bumps they hurt especially on my legs and numerous other weird things I feel like it is all in my head at times it is so frustrating.
Thank you for any input☺
